More flexibility. Lower cost. Higher quality.

MDAR is the UK importer for Velbus, supporting a network of distributors and installers around the country.

Easy to install

Like all centrally wired system, the control points exist on a common cable.
Fixtures and features wire back to a central location housing the relays and dimmers

Easy to connect

A single four wire data cable connects all Velbus control hardware around the property.
Velbus control happens in central locations or at nodes

Easy to use

The Velbus panel’s intuitive and modern designs makes them very easy to use.
A single button panel or the multifunction panels

Autonomy

Velbus is a modular system, meaning if one module’s logic should ever fail, it will never paralyse the entire installation

Each module is fully independent as it features its own processor. Every Velbus module monitors the bus continuously and responds whenever necessary. The bus is based on the CAN type which is used in the automotive sector. This type of bus is very stable and by decreasing the data speed on the bus cable to 16.6Kbps, data can be transferred over very long distances

Freedom

You can add configuration modules anywhere on the bus cable (storeroom, study) and connect your PC to change the configuration.

No one will notice any of this, as the Velbus system will continue working while changes are being made.

The bus cable can be wired in a variety of combinations:
Loop / Ring, Tree, Radial or Star.

Bus voltage between 12V and 18V is allowed.

5 year warranty

In addition to our 2 years’ factory warranty, Velbus offers an extension of 3 years after you have registered.

This is how confident we are that not only is this product the best on the market in terms of functionality, it’s also completely reliable.

CIAT CPD course

The Charted Institute of Architectural Technologists has reviewed and approved a CPD course entitled “Controlling Buildings Digitally“.

The 1 hour course is aimed at Architectural Technologists, Architects and contractors who wish to learn more about the basics of digital building controls and the advantages that these systems give their clients.

Attendees will leave the course with enough knowledge to enable them to confidently discuss the entry point for digital building control.

More information about this course can be found here –

https://ciat.org.uk/education/cpd/cpd-register/controlling-buildings-digitally.html

Hands-On With Velbus

The short “Hands-On” session aims to introduction the Velbus hardware to installers and specifiers.

The session lasts for only a couple of hours and provides attendees the chance to take a look at the products and programming software without any commitment to buy into the product.

Each session caters for a small amount of people in order to maximise the hands on time and address questions that arise appropriately.

These sessions take place around the country on an ad-hoc basis, as required.

Please get in touch to find out when a session is running near to you. Sessions can be setup at short notice on demand if required.

Velbus Certified Installer course

Introduction to Velbus as a building control hardware solution for use in a commercial automation, building control system, BMS, home automation or building remote control.

Delegates will attain hands on experience with Velbus, understand the requirements of a building control system, gain a knowledge of operating parameters of a control system and program their own counter top demonstration unit to help with their own sales.

Course will be held for small numbers of delegates in a relaxed environment, with lunch provided.

Larger groups can be accommodated upon request.

Full course cost is £800 +VAT, which will include a complete counter top demonstration unit, complete with flight case.

A second delegate from the same company can attend for a cost of £50 + VAT (This is so that companies don’t end up with excessive amounts of demonstration units, but delegates get enough hands on time with the hardware)

More details about the Velbus hardware can be found here :- www.velbus.eu
